It seems like Ciara is making her way back home. According to reports by Billboard, Ciara has left Jive Records and will now be joining forces with L.A. Reid (that’s who originally signed her back in 2003) under the restructured Epic Records. This looks to be a great business move for Ciara because then she would be top priority for Epic Records.
